Sleep Mama Sleep Lyrics

Sleep, Mama, sleep
Our cottage vale is deep
The little lamb is on the green
With snowy fleece so soft and clean
Sleep, Mama, sleep

Sleep, Papa, sleep
I would not, would not weep
The little lamb he never cries
And bright and happy are his eyes
Sleep, Papa, sleep.

Sleep, Mama, sleep,
Near where the woodbines creep;
Be always like the lamb so meek,
Kind and gentle, oh so sweet
Sleep, Mama, sleep

Sleep, Papa, sleep,
Thy rest shall angels keep.
While on the grass the lamb shall feed
And never suffer want nor need
Sleep, Papa, sleep
Sleep, Mama, sleep


Background Information

The melody for this lovely lullaby comes from the English traditional lullaby “Sleep, Baby, Sleep.” The repetition is so comforting and rhythmic and the imagery is beautiful.
